Photo of the Week #119
This past week started with the greatest gift of all, the birth of my son, Judah Samson Gerver, on Monday morning. His strong name fits his herculean build: 8 lbs. 13 oz. and 22 1/4 inches long. I’m sure he gets his super-human strength from his mom, Shira, who brought him into this world the old-fashioned way–with no drugs.
I took this portrait of Judah at one day old. Behind that bouncer-like physique, I see a sensitive side. He’s probably pleased to know that he’s a unanimous first-ballot Photo of the Week-er. Not that it’s rigged or anything :) Judah had better not get too comfy though because once he takes his first steps I plan to put those broad shoulders to good use by having him carrying my photo gear!
Photo tech specs: Canon 1Ds Mark II camera, 85mm f1.2 lens with extension tube EF 12 II, f2.5, 1/320th, ISO 250.
